Footprint Handbook South American Handbook 2017

South America will uplift your senses with the tropical sun
rising over a palm-fringed beach, or a bracing wind blowing off the southern
ice fields. Light can be blinding on the high-altitude salt flats, or dense and
green in the rain forest. The gentle scent of the ripe guava fills the
countryside, but the fire of chilli from that innocent-looking jar will
electrify your taste buds.

Explore the cities of prehispanic civilizations and the
churches of colonial times, immerse yourself in the present with its
celebrations and social dilemmas. Where past and present mix, there are
festivals, crafts and gastronomy, from the humble potato in its umpteen
varieties to the most sophisticated of wines.

If you are looking for something more active, throw yourself
off a giant sand dune into a lake, or climb the highest mountain. Walk in the
tree-tops of the rainforest, at eye level with birds and monkeys, dance in an
Andean village square to a solo violin, or to techno brega in a warehouse-sized
club in Belem. Whatever South America inspires you to do, you will find that
there is no limit to the passion that it fires within you.

In this era of countless websites which bring images and information
from every barrio and pueblito, the South American Handbook gives he details on
how to navigate between each place, big or small. It is a celebration of the
spirit of adventure and independence that characterizes travel in this part of
the world. Drawing on the expertise of correspondents in the region and the experiences
of travellers, this 93rd edition of the Handbook provides the thread
from Acandi to Ushuaia and everywhere you may wish to stop off in between.

Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay,
Venezuela, the Guianas, and the Falkland Islands.  In addition it includes:
